Provocation/Invitation: Pushkin House 4th NOV 2023

During this workshop Priya will draw on and share her working processes.

Together we will explore
– Juxtaposition of fact, fiction and acts of reimagining
-provocation and invitation as tools for evoking critical engagement
– the use of objects, performative actions, visual, sound, word languages and other languages.
At the time of writing Mistry is still in planning for this session. Priya is percolating on current projects/exhibits in Pushkin house. Which are, in this moment, evoking the….. horses, love, church, traitor, & flashbacks..
